Welcome to the Australian Sleddog Sports Association (ASSA). ASSA is the controlling body for Sleddog Sports through out Australia, which is run by mushers for mushers. ASSA, as the nation’s Sleddog association, serves as the national governing body. ASSA encourages youth development, good sportsmanship, responsible dog care and enjoyment.
ASSA is committed to the administration, promotion and development of Sleddog sports throughout Australia.
Since the formal birth of this sport in the northern hemisphere, it has grown to have international stature. Although ASSA is focused on the development of the sport locally we are supporters of those organisations attempting to have sleddog sports included in the winter Olympics in the future.
